Philly Thrive organizes for environmental, racial, and economic justice in the poorest big city in the U.S. We work to heal the unmet needs the current extractive economy creates for communities while taking direct action to transform the extractive economy into a regenerative one. 

Through our organizing, in 2020, Philly Thrive won a permanent closure of the PES oil refinery and an end to 154 years of pollution. Our current campaigns contests for justice in the historic refinery site redevelopment, and safe affordable housing for all!

Philly Thrive also runs robust community support programs, including a youth summer camp, a gun violence healing circle, a women’s support circle, and a weekly food box delivery.
